Since this is a thing we have to deal with now, Daniel Hunter at Waging Nonviolence presents "Seven Tactics to Stop a Coup." Long story short: get out in the streets the day after Election Day and seize the narrative from the coup enablers. Long story somewhat longer: don't worry about stopping interference at every place where votes get counted; just be out, and remember that planning for a coup that never comes is not a waste of time. Read the whole thing for more good advice.
ProPublica describes what happens "When Falling Behind on Rent Leads to Jail Time," i.e., in Arkansas, which allows prosecutors to file criminal-not-civil charges against folks who fall behind even one day on their rent. Then a pandemic came and threw tens of millions of people out of work, and even a national eviction moratorium didn't save everyone. If ever there was a law that dumped on poor people gleefully, this is it. And our Landlord-in-Chief no doubt eyes it jealously.
Julie Hollar at FAIR reminds us that "Journalists Pick Sides When They Call Adding Justices 'Court Packing.'" They don't call it "court-packing" when Republican Senate leaders refuse to consider judicial nominations from Democratic Presidents, after all, even though the end result of that is actual "court-packing" with right-wing judges. Also, too, the real war ain't between Democrats and Republicans, but between "anti-democratic forces and the interests of the vast majority of people in this country," which is why our "liberal" media is happy to go on about abortion in the context of judicial battles but not about, say, voting rights or workplace safety.
Texas Sen. John Cornyn runs an ad hitting his Democratic opponent, MJ Hegar, for her "graphic language," and she responds by slamming him for his "delicate sensibilities" and tells him to "keep clutching (his) pearls." And then, you know, she reminds everyone that Mr. Cornyn tried to repeal the Affordable Care Act. That's some political smarts, right there -- not just because right-wingers from our President on down use "graphic language" far more than we do, not just because anger is the correct response to most of what right-wingers do, but also because a woman is calling a man delicate and telling him to stop clutching his pearls! They deserve some of their own, after all.
Finally, the "law-and-order" crowd no doubt thinks it has its October Surprise with the civil unrest in West Philly following the Walter Wallace, Jr., shooting by police, but we're in the age, now, when any reasonable person would ask if some agent provocateur ignited the looting, like that gas mask-wearing Nazi wannabe at the AutoZone in Minneapolis. It's even possible that some cable TV news viewers have finally noticed that they're showing the same damn footage over and over again! And not for nothing, but back when I was a social worker, a resident pulled a knife on me more than once, and nobody died.
